looks to me that the upload directory
for this item is nonexistent.
(it's possible we accidentally nuked your dir
when some of our audio drives overfilled).

can you reupload the files into audio-uploads
FTP in subdir "nfn-2005-05-21"?

"can you reupload the files into audio-uploads

Done. All of the files and one MD5 checksum file are all in there.

What should I do now?

I ask because the only two options I'm aware of are both closed to me: replacing files in http://www.archive.org/details-db.php?mediatype=audio&identifier=nfn-2005-05-21 has been disabled, and I can't re-import a directory with the same name as an extant directory.

Thanks for all of your help.

Looks like once the files were re-uploaded,
our contribution system took over,
verified all the XML and such,
and made it all push through!

Please reply back if you are still having problems!

Unfortunately, I'm still having trouble with this entry.

I took a look at http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?collection=opensource_audio&collectionid=nfn-2005-05-21 and reloaded the page (with a forced reload, just to be sure). I don't see any of the files listed at all. When I look at ftp://audio44.archive.org:/3/audio/nfn-2005-05-21/ I see two XML files and a .conf file (all generated by archive.org). audio44 is where the site told me I'd find the files.

The good news is that my upload worked: The files I uploaded to audio-uploads.archive.org are still there in /nfn-2005-05-21/, so I'm still stymied about what to do to make these files publicly accessible.

ok, not entirely sure what happened (sigh 8-)
your upload dir had all your files, but none of the ".xml" files we make from your form submissions.
whereas the item "live" had all the ".xml" files but none of your files (!)

so i manually copied all the ".xml" files back into your upload dir and "became you" 8-)
and "submitted your item for replacement".

it is queued now, and i think this time it should go through.

this doesn't normally happen, so i'm not entirely sure what happened.

Forum: forums Subject: So close...

Would you mind taking another look at http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?collection=opensource_audio&collectionid=nfn-2005-05-21 because progress is being made, but the files aren't quite there yet.

If users go to the FTP site, they can get all of the files (including the MD5 file), and that's great. But if they visit the above URL, they won't see any of the files.

It looks like the data on the FTP site (audio44) and the XML files describing the files are out of sync.

But this particular entry looks a lot closer to normal than it has ever been, thanks to you Tracey Pooh, so thanks so much for all of your help.

hi, ok,

so i think the issue might be that you have a "rules.conf" file in your item that might have caused mp3s *not* to be made (did you not want them "derived" from your flac/oggs?)

the audio (See "Whole Directory" link on the left) is fully downloadable.
i'm not sure what "triggers" files to show up in the middle wide column, but it seems if there are mp3s and/or wavs, then rows show up...

going to ask brad leblanc to help us out here on that...

We're good - the links in the middle of the page are created with the files.xml information, so I Edited the details page, clicked "File Options" and filled it out again.

10 minutes later, the links appeared correctly. We see this happen a lot in the LMA section if users rename or change files after importing and describing them.

Forum: forums Subject: It ain't over 'til it's over, and now it's over!

I was operating on the (apparently incorrect) idea that I could get archive.org to somehow see the files I was seeing on the FTP site if I asked the site to make derivatives. I didn't really want derivatives, but I thought I could turn it off if I saw archive.org trying to make derivatives.

So I turned on derivative files, checked my process list, and didn't see derivatives in the job queue. So that idea proved to be a bust, hence I turned off derivative creation and waited for someone who knew better to do something.

Thanks to both of you for your attentive help, everything is fine now.
